Joe Hart knows he needs to be focused throughout on Friday
By Nicholas Veevers
says concentration will be important on Friday as England prepare to face San Marino at a sold-out Wembley.
The Three Lions are firm favourites to beat the visitors and goalkeeper Hart isn’t expected to be put under too much pressure by the part-timers.
But he knows that firm focus will be required throughout, regardless of how often he may be tested on the night.
He said: "Concentration is key and it's always key.
“I imagine, like most teams when they come to Wembley, they will try to defend.
“I can't foresee what the game is going to be like but I know I'll need to keep alert and keep other people alert.
“I’ll try to help in any way I can but if that means staying out of the way, I'll stay out of the way.”
Hart was speaking from St. George’s Park, where Roy Hodgson’s squad have been preparing for the World Cup qualifier
during the opening week of the new national football centre
And the Manchester City stopper has been impressed by the facilities at everyone’s disposal.
He added: "It's amazing with the facilities that are here.
“'I think it’s only going to be a positive thing for the country football-wise, with the way things are going to move forward.
"It's great for us to use and it's got more than you need so it's a step in the right direction and can only help.”
